Was it hit already? Why does it say 4,978,436 posts in the Trek BBS statistics.
^ I'm seeing a smaller number: 4,957,199
I'm also seeing Jim Gamma's post as #60, not 66....something is amiss!
Yes, my eyesight and a dodgy computer screen. Sixty it is. Sorry!
As to post counts, 4,957,474 is what I see on the main page.
What's with the inconsistencies? It's at 4,978,901 now on my home computer (above is from my work computer), fairly close. I'm curious who the 5,000,000th post will be but one person's reading someone hit it, mine is showing it didn't, and another is showing less than me.
You have to remember that the count on the main page only contains posts still in the database - so whilst the post ID might show 9 million, if 4 million have been pruned, it'll only show as 5 million on the index.
Not sure why different people are getting different numbers - might be a cache problem, or maybe something to do with only counting forums you can see?
Edit: oh look, post #66 in the thread was mine after all.
I think they should set up a script that when we get to 4,999,999 posts it automatically deletes the oldest post on the board before posting the new one.
Just to annoy everyone.
I have recalculated the totals and it looks like the milestone will now be reached on October 31.
End of days
Maybe. I haven't opted in to TNZ, for example. Plus there's all the lounges for various ranks.
Don't opt in to TNZ.
It is a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
If you are the person to make the 5,000,000th post, Chekov comes to your house to announce that the Russians did it first.
Maybe instead of finding the 5,000,000th post (which apparently we can't agree on), how about seeing what the 10,000,000th numbered post will be? While a bit further off, that does seem to be a bit easier to find.
I go away for just over a week and we're a lot closer
Ah, the classic ticking-clock cliff-hanger.
I'm at 4,988,125. Anyone showing the same or close to it?
whole lotta spamming goin on
As I said, we'll probably only get consensus on the absolute numbers in the upper right corner of each post.
This is what I see on the right:
The Trek BBS statistics
Currently online: 333
That's what we should go with.
Wow. IT'S COMING!!!
Oh PLEASE let it be something super cool and not "toast" in the What are you Eating thread..
